It's always the simple answers that seem the smartest.

I don't own a glue gun, or I would have thought of that.

True enough SugarJ and thank you.

I just see it used on every Antec case I have ever owned and think "gosh thats cheap", but then my reset button broke had it been crazy glue it would of involved a drill and small a pile of plastic and metal that once was my reset button. I'll take the cheap way out.

Thanks for the tips SugarJ...

I took apart an old led fan I had laying around and I see what you're talking about now...

Although looking at the led, I could see no clear indication of which side is positive and which side is negative...

They used to have the plastic ring on one side clipped to show which was negative. But the last time I bought LED's was about 15 years ago. I'd just plug the fan in and test by touching wires before soldering, that's all.
